Even before the Second World War by Ruhr rapid transit a system of accelerated local trains had been introduced, which already included a large part of today's suburban railway network in the Ruhr. Here and there were even owner-occupied railway tracks, as it currently is the case mostly. From this system was under the name "Nahschnellverkehr", later recorded "Rapid Transit District" again.
In addition to the previously used steam locomotives of the DRG Class 78 were now also specifically developed for this purpose locomotives DB Class 65 used. The S-Bahn network was with the line of Ratings east to Dusseldorf-Garath inaugurated and since then continuously expanded.
Today the network of 13 lines. First electric locomotives Series were n-car "silver" used   Later these were replaced by multiple units of the Class added and partially detached.
Since the s the West German locomotive industry only electric locomotives of the DB Class made and has been looking for opportunities for them, it was decided to use the S-Bahn Rhein-Ruhr instead of multiple units pull trains with locomotives. For this, the x-car have been developed, which replaced the previously used vehicles from gradually.
From 17 November  were first launched in again in the Ruhr used railcars of series by new trains of the class be replaced. Currently, the trains from the series and x-cars are gradually being replaced as well. So far, the new railcars operating on all the lines except the S 6 In December , the famous the Rhein-Ruhr that as a result of problem with the approval of additional vehicles class Instead, the series at the S-Bahn Rhein Ruhr- will be used.
Delivery of the vehicles should be completed by the end of Total should be used in the VRR vehicles of class and There vacant units of class should be replaced instead of the series , the locomotive-hauled trains on the lines of S6 and S68 in December In December the following vehicles or vehicle combinations were used lines to the train.
From 13 June should be used on the S 6 in the morning double headings of class And for this purpose amplifier trips eliminated. By the competition of three major railroads, the Rhineland and the Ruhr area by a number of railway lines had been tapped. Already with the introduction of the Ruhr rapid transit s that were brought together by extensions and new connecting lines to new roads.
This practice was followed in developing the S-Bahn network further, so the current S-Bahn lines sometimes traveled half a dozen different rail lines. Since , the line parallel to the line S 21 S 1 runs with the difference that they turned from Dusseldorf-Unterrath to Dusseldorf airport terminal, then turned and drove through a connection track back to the range of S 1 in the north. The line S 21 was the 24th May and set the line S 1 took over until the opening of the airport underground station on 27 May , the branching Strechenabschnitte the present airport terminal  As part of the network adjustment, , with the S 7 the first time set a main line of the S-Bahn Rhein-Ruhr.
With the timetable change on 13 December there were significant changes in the overall network of the S-Bahn Rhein-Ruhr win. The line S 7 has been abandoned or separated :. The reason for the network adaptation was in the endeavor, the number of hourly services between Dusseldorf main railway station and Dusseldorf-Derendorf peak hours or Dusseldorf Wehrhahn NPCs, including shunting in the sidelines to reduce from twelve to nine, so that in case of faults, the impact can be minimized to the other lines.
